40 Degrees In April

Posted: Updated:

"Say goodbye to old man winter... say hello to sweet spring time"....
Tim McGraw sings on his new album "Let It Go"... But wait, I am here in
Dallas, our first southern stop on our southern bus tour and am jogging
outside in 40 degree freezing cold -- and of course listening to Tim's
new album and smarting from the irony. Time magazine had it right when
they described the planet's illness from global warming as being sick
with the flu and going from night shivers to a cold sweat. That is
exactly what is happening. 70 degrees in January and 40 degrees in
April. That is exactly why Sheryl Crow and I are in a biodiesel bus
going thru the Southeast visiting college campuses to talk about the
urgency of this issue and how everyone... everyone.... has to start
doing something. I would write more, but I have to go run warm water
over my hands and thaw out from my run.
